Winner: "Best Fitness Walking Shoe for 2013" - Walking.About.com "Reader's Choice" Awards
An excellent choice for brisk fitness walking, light jogging, casual walking and everday wear. The Prospecs 400 series of shoes offers the maximum cushioning and stability within the Prospecs family of shoes. The 400 series is built on a Moveframe(TM) technology, which supports and cushions the foot both up and down throughout your walking stride. The Moveframe core of the shoe acts like a spine guiding your foot forward without rolling in or out. The shock absorbtion of the shoe is very noticeable, and you will feel all the way through your stride. Excellent shoes for daily exercise, power walking, and for people who have occupations that require long hours of walking and standing.
SHAPE magazine published their 2013 Shoe Awards, and gave Prospecs an honorable mention in an article entitled "Sneakers We Love" [April, 2013]. One tester remarked "This shoe made power walking more fun."

I am 58 years old and shop mostly online. Believe it or not I have never taken the time to write a review although I look at all the other reviews before making purchases. What prompted me to write is the best customer service ever from Mark. What a nice person and so helpful with my choice of sneaker. By the way, the sneakers are awesome too!!!

I work 12 hours as a nurse, am 63 & before I got these shoes I would bring an extra pair of shoes to work, so that I could change during the day. Not anymore. These have great support & cushion. I am so glad I found these. Customer service is awesome.

I have many foot issues - probably wear and tear from so much hiking! - and finally found shoes that give me the support and comfort that I need. The people at Prospecs were amazing to deal with and were very helpful.

I ordered this shoe in (10) my normal size. I found out it has lots of room in the front an needed half a size smaller. I spoke with the owner who gave me all the time needed till he figured out my needs and guided me to the right shoe, which was 420 grey with yellow color. because it had less room in the front which i needed.
I walk at least 6 days a week 5 miles a day, and this shoe is absolutely great. it is stable and comfortable much easier on the joints.

This shoe is comfortable and has good cushioning. I walk 24-30 miles a week and they great. I like the extra pair of shoestrings. Mark at the Shoe Shoppe is great to work with. Thank you for the pair of walking socks. The service is excellent.

I was skeptical about buying a walking shoe before trying it on because I have that pesky long second toe and a narrow heel. Needless to say I am thrilled.. they shoe fits! It is so comfortable. I wore them the first day ALL day... That never happens. My feet didnt get too hot either, (don't know why) but who cares... I loved them all day long. Thank you so much. I heard that I was the first every order from Oklahoma.. I won't be the last. I'm telling everyone. Thanks for the free socks ;O)

I love this shoe! The support, cushioning, stability and appearance are outstanding! I am looking forward to purchasing another pair soon!

First I would like to say the shoes are great. I have a wide foot and was a little nervous, but they fit perfectly. They are a very stable shoe and very comfortable throughout the entire day (I walk 5 - 7 miles every day). But I would also like to give The Shoe Shopp a great review. I received my product quickly and to my surprise in the package was a complimentary pair of socks and a very nice note from "Mark" wishing me happy walking! The extra mile they took got them a faithful customer on future purchases! Thank you to The Shoe Shoppe!

I'm very active, one of my jobs is a fitness instructor, and still I have lower back and hip issues from a previous car accident. I also have very high arches like barbie doll feet. If I miss a couple days of working out, my back and hips begin to tighten up and get very sore. When I stay active I stay strong.
This past year I was finishing my senior year at college. Projects were so intense, I took 2 semesters off from teaching my fitness class and didn't make any time to workout on my own either. Boy did I pay for it when I started to get back into it. Even walking was painful. My back was screaming and my hips hurt so bad when I walked that they felt like they were bleeding internally lol.
Ive always used my running shoes for working out and teaching my fitness class and for walking. Never realized the differences w the technology involved in the building of walking vs running shoes.
I found Prospecs Power Walk 405's online. OMG I cant believe how awesome these shoes are! First time I put them on I felt like a baby horse standing for the first time. My left foot tried to pronate out but the shoe corrected it immediately. I never knew my feet were not aligned when I walked. I walked back and forth in my house. Could feel both feet trying to over pronate. The shoes aligned the strike of my feet properly. I was blown away. never knew my feet did that and was amazed a shoe could immediately fix it. it was so cool! lol. They make not only your feet align correctly, they make you stand tall and aligned all the way up your back. You stand tall and you walk tall. You walk faster and with purpose. No kidding I felt like I took a bunch of vitamins.
When I did a long walk w my boyfriend I noticed he was sort of bobbing up and down as he walked but i wasn't. I was walking very smoothly. And my strides were longer. Love the shoes so much my boyfriend is convinced and is buying a pair. I'm also going to get the other color so I have 2 pair. Would love if the women's came in black and also in white. I'd get a pair of each of those colors too!
The customer service at ShoeShoppe is AMAZING. very fast shipping with my order. Boyfriend's size wasn't in stock so he got a call next day on his order letting him know that his card had been refunded and they'd call him when that size came in. Boyfriend was impressed with promptness of the call and the card being refunded and so is going to wait and order with them when his size comes in.
Thank you for fantastic customer service and for a great fitness walking shoe!!

These are the best shoes I have EVER worn. They're lightweight with just the right amount of support. My feet feel great after my walks. I had to exchange the originals for 1/2 size larger & the customer service was EXCELLENT. Shipping time was amazingly swift. Have definitely found my favorite place to shop for athletic shoes.
